Calling all songwriters!
Calling all composers and instrumentalists and synth wizards!
Calling all poets and writers and storytellers!

Do you have new solo or duo material you’re itching to present?
Join us for Donau115’s regular open stage series, Two-Song Tuesdays.

Your set may include TWO SONGS or last TEN MINUTES.

“How do I get booked?”
Just show up // There is no pre-booking // Sign up opens at 19:00 (first come, first booked) // The first performer will begin at 20:00 // No soundcheck – so be ready. Slip on, blow minds, slip off.

“What can I play?”
This is entirely up to you. Out of respect for our neighbours:
– you may NOT use loud percussion and loud bass-heavy signals into the PA.
– you are welcome to use our backline, which includes:
— piano
— generic vocal microphones
— a small terrible PA, accepting guitar/XLR cables (new one coming soon!)

“But what about Covid-19”
Yep, we know. 🙁 No more than 25 people may be in our stage area at any time. Those wishing to enter after that capacity has been reached can enjoy a drink or a taco in the back room or outside on our sidewalk seating until more spaces become available.

“Anything else?”
Donau115 is a very fun but weird musician’s musician kind of bar, come expecting oddballs.

In the bass corner – Mr. Greg Cohen.

Structucture vereint vier Individuen, welche bei Ihrer ersten gemeinsamen Begegnung unmittelbar ihre übereinstimmenden Ideen einer musikalischen Spielhaltung entdeckten. In ihrer Musik geht es um Energie, um das Erschaffen eines kollektiven Ausdrucks von Kreativität. Das konzentrierte Zusammenspiel bewegt sich zwischen schnellen Impulsen und Ruhephasen, welche von allen vier Musikern gleichermaßen gesteuert und verarbeitet werden.
In Roger Kintopf’s Kompositionen werden die Möglichkeiten des interaktiven Zusammenspiels innerhalb des Quartetts ohne Harmonieinstrument bis in die Tiefe ausgelotet. Die Kompositionen gründen auf starken Strukturen, Rhythmen und Harmonien, welche die beiden Saxophonisten Victor Fox und Asger Nissen auf vielfältigste Weise miteinander agieren lassen.Felix Ambach und Roger Kintopf sind nicht einfach Rhythmusgruppe. Als eine stark verzahnte Einheit entwickelt Structucture eine Spielhaltung, welche stets den Gesamtsound der Band und die Flexibilität jedes individuellen Musikers innerhalb eines sich einheitlich bewegenden Geflechts fokussiert.

Structucture unites four individuals, who found their common idea of a musical attitude since the first day they met. Their music aims to create a collective expression of creativity with great energy. The atmosphere shifts between energetic impulses and phases of silence, which are controlled and processed by concentrated interaction of all four musicians.
Roger Kintopf’s compositions fathom the possibilities of interaction within this quartet without a harmony instrument. The music is based on strong structures, rhythm and harmony, which let the saxophonists Victor Fox and Asger Nissen operate with versatility. Felix Ambach and Roger Kintopf are not merely a rhythm section. As a strongly interlocked unit, Structucture develops an attitude, which focuses the sound of the whole band as well as the flexibility of each individual musician within that constantly moving entity.
